Los Angeles, CA – Bobby, a Terrier mix, was so depressed when he first arrived at the South Los Angeles shelter, that some believed he was sick.
Or suffering in some horrible way…Bobby sat in his cage, too depressed to get up – too lethargic to move.
Bobby was taken to the shelter veterinarian to be “put down” – but the veterinarian sensed something inside of this dog – something buried beneath paralyzing fear.
Sure enough – when Bobby was taken out of the shelter to a grassy area, his spark for life emerged.
Up went the tail, out came the happy tongue and the real Bobby made himself known.
He was not dying – he was simply terrified.
Bobby was spared that day – but the shelter is frighteningly crowded right now.
So crowded that Bobby has been given just days to live.
Bobby has “through” the holiday weekend to leave – or he will leave, but not with a family.
From a shelter volunteer,
Bobby is a sweet boy, full of pep and gusto. He is polite with his treats, most likely house-trained, and was someone’s beloved pet at some point in the past. But, that is past — and Bobby urgently needs out of the shelter now!
Bobby would make an excellent friend to one lucky individual – can you please help him find that person, before his time runs out?
Bobby was paralyzed with fear – he knows that he is not safe where he is at.
Please help him keep that happy smile and share it for the rest of his years with a loving guardian.
Two seconds of your time may change his life forever.
